It is quite common for most children not to recognize their own visual deficiencies such as symptoms of blurry vision, double vision, problems using their eyes together, or symptoms of an eye disease. It is very important for them receive routine eye exams each year to help detect any of these problems and possibly prevent vision loss.
Terra Vision Care Optometrists Participate In The "Eye See... Eye Learn" Program
The "Eye See... Eye Learn" Program provides free eye exams for children in Kindergarten, and free glasses to children in Kindergarten who require a prescription. The “Free Glasses for Kindergarten Classes” program is provided to Kindergarten students in participating school districts. An estimated twenty five percent of children begin grade one with an undiagnosed vision or eye health problem, which can interfere with their ability to learn during their first critical years in school.
